We stayed at the hotel right before Christmas. We came from France with our 1.5 yr old daughter. The hotel only has 5 villas and mainly we were disappointed with the room. We got in late from Sao Paulo and we were directed by the security guard at the door. He showed us to our room which was located right off the entrance of the hotel. At first I thought we were going to a front desk to check in. But later I realized that it was our room.
On the website its advertised as a one bedroom villa. Coming from the hotel industry a “one bedroom villa” is a room with the possibility of closing off the room. I was really hoping that was the case since we could have more privacy with a baby. The next day I mentioned to the front desk team and they told me there were no other options.
The terrace where there was a hammock was facing a wall. I just thought paying around 500 Euros a night you would get a better room/view.

Other than that overall its a beautiful property with excellent service.
Everyone is very attentive and the hotel is very well maintained. The concierge was very helpful with many suggestions in a daily basis.

Trancoso unfortunately is a bit over rated I thought in terms of price. We do live in Cannes, France which is one of the most expensive cities. But Trancoso has surpassed that...

The “quadrado” where you have all the restaurants/bars/stores is very charming but once again a bit of a tourist trap.

The beach is beautiful....one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen.
The hotel’s set up at the beach is very nice.

Each of our guests is special and we regret that this guest was not pleased with their villa accomdaotion. For families with nannies and small children we do offer two bedroom villas that are more suitable for couples desiring privacy. galen briggs, owner/host

we adored this hotel, everything about it was first class quality. We stayed in the villa's at the back with our own private pool. Breakfast was an amazing affair with fresh fruit, eggs any style, cheese, salami, champagne!
We also had the argentinian BBQ on the first night which was delicious.
Overall this was such an enjoyable experience, with helpful friendly staff and the most beautiful setting right ton the beach. We couldn't of asked for more.

We came back again for another visit to Trancoso and to the Villas of Trancoso. We enjoy the peace, quiet, and sun at the resort. The true first class treatment and quality of the resort has brought us back for several visits. The reception staff was warm, always with a genuine smile, and made us feel welcome from the moment they said “bom dia”. The housekeeping staff was amazing with a real focused attention to detail. It was fun to come back to the room when they were complete and see what arrangement they had created with the towels (a dog, elephant, heart and others). What a treat and always impeccably clean!

Activities we have done include mountain biking and kayaking. Both created opportunities to see breath-taking Brazilian beauty. This time we tried something new – we did the Eco-Adventura. What fun to make a trip through the canopy of the jungle, with different stages adding variety to the challenge. The staff was attentive to each individual making sure they were comfortable during the whole activity with a special emphasis on safety. Wild monkey’s, incredible plant life and a nifty sip line finish. Try the longer challenging course to test your balance and skills! It’s lots of fun.

We loved the staff, every part of the accommodations, and mostly….we loved the experience of visiting and relaxing in a paradise!!

Room Tip: We have stayed in most rooms and all are wonderful!

We had a wonderful stay here for 5 nights at the end of August. The villas and beach are wonderful, great food and above all very good service from management and staff. We plan to return. I really cannot understand the comment from the previous poster - the booking and payment procedure was handled extremely professionally and the owner/ management are quite evidently people of integrity.

I recently returned from a most rewarding experience at the Villas of Trancoso in the Brazil State of Bahia and felt that I needed to share my thoughts with my fellow travelers. This is the kind of place that you want to take all your best friends. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. There great amenities along with a delicious restaurant serving signature Brazilian cuisine and anything else you have in mind. And yes, a well stocked bar. Service is sterling. Rooms are luxurious. You will find it to be a very romantic place....really. You may rekindle a side of love that you thought was long gone. The Villas of Trancoso is an intimate pousada on the ocean resting in an beautiful tropical environment that allows you to leave all of your daily life challenges behind and perhaps inspire one of life's moments to access just where you have been and more importantly where you are going. One of my favorite times was late evening facing the ocean as the tide sounds the end of wonderful day. And all is right in the world. Speaking of the world you will find that people from all over that world at the Villas which makes for great conversation.

But rest assured that this is a FIVE STAR pousada in every way. If you haven't already done so you need to visit their web site http://www.villasdetrancoso.com/ where you will see why I highly recommend the Villas without reservation.

I just returned from a wonderful family trip to Brazil, staying at Villas de Trancoso. My family (Mom and Dad, and brothers with their wives) and I stayed in the newly added wing of Bungalows which was perfect for us. Three separate private Bungalows (1 with a kitchen), which share a common living room/Big Screen TV area, was the perfect mix of family togetherness yet still private time in our beautiful bungalow. We even had our own private small pool and garden. It was great privacy, yet only 50 meters from the main infinity pool/restaurant area. Of course the beautiful beach access being so close was a huge plus as well. We have already booked a return trip for 2012!

We stayed here for 7 nights at the end of our honeymoon. We were sold the hotel by our travel agent who personally recommended it after a stay earlier this year.
Everything about this hotel was fantastic! The staff were friendly and could not do enough for you to ensure you had the best stay possible. The Villa was both spacious and extremely comfortable, with free wi-fi and a good selection of DVD's and magazines to entertain.
The private beach area was secluded and extremely comfortable, with excellent service at the beach bar. The quality of food from the buffet breakfast with eggs to order, through to the vast lunch and dinner menu was always excellent.
If you want a quiet relaxing beach holiday away from the usual tourist traps, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this fantastic place.
